It is a prevailing trait of Filipinos to stop or cut down their medicine intake during treatment procedure despite a prescription by a doctor. This is either because they are on a tight budget or they are simply apathetic particularly if the condition is not yet serious.
What many do not realize however, is that the consequences of not adhering to the prescribed treatment regimen almost often becomes severe.
According to a US-based research, patients get hospitalized for an average of 8 to 12 days longer for not complying with treatment regimen. Aside from the additional costs, brought about by hospitalization, are the complications brought about by the illness itself.
Such risks, however, can be prevented if patients will thoroughly adhere to their medications and follow their doctors’ directions to the letter.
Pharex HealthCorp. acknowledges the dangers patients may face for not adhering to the treatment regimen. It is because of this that it introduced the Pharex Compliance Pouch.
This innovation ensures that patients suffering from chronic but manageable illnesses can have a good quality of life by maintaining their adherence to the treatment regimen in a more convenient and affordable way.
“Compliance with prescribed medication helps decrease the risk of hospitalization and the accompanying complications,” said Tomas Marcelo Agana III, president and CEO of Pharex. “Taking accurate and on-time anti-hypertensive drugs, for instance, can cause better control of blood pressure and can even reverse the condition or prevent it from getting worse.”
